ARF Young Pros – Breakfast with Champions

Some things you just can’t buy. Access is one of them. Access to some of the smartest people in the research industry. People you’ve read about, heard about, admired, and maybe even seen keynote at an event.

Now, as an ARF Young Pro, you can win the chance to have breakfast with one of these leaders through our Breakfast with Champions series. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to enter the world of a top senior executive and exchange ideas and experiences.

Upcoming breakfasts will be announced at Young Pros events and on our website. If you’re interested in attending, fill out a form at one of our Young Pros events telling us what you would ask our hosting Champion. Twelve winners will then be chosen to attend a breakfast at the Champion’s company.

"The Breakfast with Champions was very informative and I think the group size was perfect—intimate enough for everyone to get attention yet large enough to hear dynamic and insightful questions from different parts of research."
Karina Roa – Research Analyst, GfKMRI

"Many thanks again for putting together such a rewarding Breakfast with Champions session. I’m rarely afforded the opportunity to speak with such senior yet approachable female leaders. Colleen’s career advice came at a particularly good time—at an early stage of my career when I’m trying to find my niche and figure out my future. I found the structure of the program to work nicely; the first 20 or so minutes gave us sufficient time to network and speak with our peers (I made two nice connections with the Young Pros sitting next to me). And the Q&A portion was the right amount of time; I particularly liked that we were encouraged to ask questions, but it was done so on a volunteer basis, so very little pressure was put on each individual…great session! Thank you again for the lovely program. Looking forward to the next Young Pros event."
Maris Cohen – Project Coordinator, Kantar Media
